Go to the main page and find "Thor industries owners forum" and you will see a link to the Airstresm forums. There is a section dedicated to motorhomes. Sad to see they are no longer being built. Very well built coach.

Air Forum is a site that has Air Stream products.

These are great old coaches and with care will run for many miles. With 114,000 miles, the drive train needs to be watched. A lot will depend on how hard the coach was run. 60 and 65 mph, the 454 is a beast. 75 mph, you will see shorter engine life. The 454 has a bad habit of breaking the exhaust manifolds, especially the right manifold.

Thanks, I asume that that is why they went to the Banks System Stainless headers through to mufflers. Also breathing system.. The trans was replaced 5 years ago, and only couple thousand miles have been put on since. This has been stored for the last five years in a heated poll barn. Everything has been repaired or replaced that was broken. The only problem was that Camper World repaired the roof, and it leaked worse than it did before. Water damage was not structural just little stain. I repaired the room myself and is just fine... Oh, also has new tires, and the ones in the front are real wide tires for Motorhomes for stability....The owner said his wife didn't like camping, and I bought it for $5000. It looks and drives almost new!!! Just can't find any info on the net about these other than air forums...

Hi,

I had a 1994 33' Landyacht. Bought it used in 2003. Loved the layout and quality of the interior. Engine was good, tranny was good. That's the good news... I never could get the thing NOT to leak. I had the roof completely resealed at an AS dealer but to no avail. Since I sold it I have looked at several and everyone had leak damage from minor to major. Yours may be different but make sure you have the roof checked out and professionally sealed.

Mine also had an air ride system that would inflate/deflate the rear air bags as needed to keep the unit level (side to side) while riding down the road. There was obviously something wrong with this as the PO had bypassed it. After I had it hooked back up, I found out why. It would slowly leak out the air and would result with the MH resting on the tires. I had to manually let the air out of the air tank that supports the air bags to force the the system to refill the bags. Again took this to a dealer to fix. All they ended up doing was replacing a minor part and even then they hooked it up backwards.

I do hope you have better luck with yours. It looks nice from the pics.

Tom

Airstream Roof Leaking Problem

I think that is why I bought it so cheap! I brought the MH into my shop, cleaned off the roof to check it out. The roof had 3 seams and they all leaked. I removed the caps and caulk, cleaned off the roof with Lacquer thinner. Then I installed 50 year ext caulk in seams, let dry for 24 hours and replaced the caps over the seams. I went to larger stainless screws so I would get a better bite. Then I found this product on Ebay it is a 4' tape and covered all the seams skylite vents & ac. As it turned out it was raining that day so I pulled it out to check it... Rained for 2 days, and no leaks. Interior damage was small, just some small stain. Problem is, that he took it to Camping World for repair, and all they did was smear caulk over the seams. 7hours labor an $300 material... Un real...

I assume its on The GM chassis. If so its almost identicle to the Workhorse, many of the components are the same. Workhorse purchased the chassis line from GM in 1999 so you may be able to find more information in the workhorse forum. Enjoy your new coach.

Beings it is a '92 and has a 454 engine you can pretty much be sure it is on a Chevy P-30 chassis. There were tons of them made and a lot of the chassis parts are still available from Chevy dealers and aftermarket suppliers.
